Our Experience has shown that the “desire to buy” starts at a sellers curb. How is the curb appeal of the home from the street? When the drive way has been paid special attention to – our buyers usually find that the inside of the home is in tip-top-shape. In fact, if a homeowner is so caring to pay the utmost attention to his/her driveway, the rest of the home will show wonderfully!
Making a statement with your Santa Clarita Valley driveway can add value to your home while enhancing its curb appeal. The driveway is an integral part of your property, serving as a welcome mat, and while it may be often overlooked, it doesn’t have to be. When examining the exterior of your home take a good look at your driveway and what it says about you and your home.
Driveways take a lot of wear and tear but they don’t have to be worn pavement. From elegant pavers, to simple concrete rectangles, a driveway can make a statement, one which can add appeal to your home. Attractive driveway designs can include grid like or porous pavers that can include groundcover or grass in their midst, offering a landscaped look with the stability of brick or stone for driving on. In addition pavers can be different sizes, shapes, and colors and laid down to create designs or patterns that are in keeping with your home’s style of architecture. A wide black strip is not your only option!
The driveway should be seen as the grand entrance to your home, does it look intriguing like the red carpet or a bit uninviting like a back alley? Look through magazines and explore your options, simply filling the cracks and repainting the tarmac black does not have to be your only option.
